JESUS WAS A BASTARD
AN ILLEGAL ALIEN
BORN TO TRAVELERS
AN ENEMY COMBATANT

HE WAS A DRIFTER
MOSTLY UNEMPLOYED
DID MANUAL LABOR
TURNING SORROW INTO JOY

HE WAS NOT A CHRISTIAN
HE WAS NOT A "GOOD JEW"
HE WASN'T A MUSLIM
HE WAS TABOO

AND HE WAS HOMELESS
SLEPT IN THE PARK
DDIN'T HAVE AN ADDRESS
HE WEPT IN THE DARK

HE WAS A VANDAL
AN IMMIGRANT CHILD
TORE IT UP AT THE TEMPLE
HE RAN WILD

HE WAS A LOW-LIFE
HE HUNG OUT WITH WHORES
AND FOR HIS WHOLE LIFE
HE WAS POOR

AND HE WAS DIRTY
DUST ON HIS FEET
DIDN'T LIVE MUCH PAST 30
BUT HIS WORK WAS COMPLETE

HE MADE CHOICES
THAT WOUND HIM UP DEAD
HE HEARD VOICES
INSIDE HIS HEAD

HE WAS RECKLESS
THEY SAID HE WASN'T DEVOUT
THAT CROSS ON YOUR NECKLACE
THAT'S HOW THEY TOOK HIM OUT

'CAUSE HE WAS COMMON
AND RARELY ALONE
SAID HE WHO'S WITHOUT SIN
SHOULD CAST THE FIRST STONE

HE ROLLED WITH THE BROTHERS
HE SPOKE IN A SLANG
BROKE IT DOWN FOR THE OTHERS
HE RAN WITH A GANG

HE DIDN'T MIND HIS OWN BUSINESS
HE GAVE HIS OPINION
MADE EVERYONE RESTLESS
THIS JEWISH PALESTINIAN

HE HAD ANGER
HE HAD PAIN
HE BROUGHT DANGER
HE BROUGHT RAIN

HE HAD PATIENCE
HE HAD DOUBT
HE HAD FAITH IN HIM
THAT'S WHAT HE'S ALL ABOUT

HE SAW THE FUTURE
HE SAW THE PAST
HE SAW A NEW WORLD
SAID THIS ONE WON'T LAST

HE SAW THE FUTURE
HE SAW THE PAST
HE SAW A NEW WORLD
SAID THIS ONE WON'T LAST

HE SAW THE FUTURE
HE SAW THE PAST
HE SAW A NEW WORLD
SAID THIS ONE WON'T LAST

THIS ONE WON'T LAST
THIS ONE WON'T LAST
THIS ONE WON'T LAST
THIS ONE WON'T LAST
